Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The transport incubator used since 1972 was modified for the CPAP method (continuous positive airway pressure). A very generous indication for the use of this ventilatory assistance in the presence of very early clinical signs of respiratory distress syndrome before or during the transport into the Children's Hospital has contributed towards improving the survival rate of infants with a birth weight of 1001-1500 grams to 84,8% and for those below 1000 grams to 39,4%.
